Data Metrics Survey

Hi all,
Following our meeting in Botswana and two virtual calls since, we have put together a survey for repositories on data metrics implementations. If you are a repository provider, could you please fill out this survey?
Please help us spread the survey (through our channels, other WGs, twitter, etc) – the more responses we get the richer data we will have for our Philly meeting and the WG deliverables!
Thank you,
On behalf of,
